'Life as it unfolds in front of the camera is full of so much complexity, wonder and surprise that I find it unnecessary to create new realities. There is more pleasure, for me, in things as they are.' - David Hurn David Hurn (b. 1934) is one of Britain's most important reportage photographers. His documentary photographs are distinguished by their quiet observation and remarkable insight. Released to coincide with Magnum photo agency's seventieth birthday, this is the first book dedicated to Hurn's photographs from Arizona. 'In 1979/80 I was awarded a 'U.K./USA Bicentennial Fellowship'. This was a one year award to photograph in America. I chose Arizona - it is the most right wing state in America, plus it is the driest State in America. The exact opposite of my home country Wales. The contrasts appealed to me.' Hurn fell in love with Arizona and made several trips back between 1979 and 2001. Hurn's greatest subject is ordinary people pursuing ordinary passions and in Arizona he tur

A major new study of the portraiture of one of the most important artists of the nineteenth century Paul Cézanne (1839–1906) may be best known for his landscapes, but he also painted some 160 portraits throughout his exceptional career. This major work establishes portraiture as an essential practice for Cézanne, from his earliest self-portraits in the 1860s; to his famous depictions of figures including his wife Hortense Fiquet, the writer Emile Zola, and the art dealer Ambroise Vollard; and concluding with a poignant series of portraits of his gardener Vallier, made shortly before Cézanne’s death. Featured essays by leading experts explore the special pictorial and thematic characteristics of Cézanne’s portraits. The authors address the artist’s creation of complementary pairs and multiple versions of the same subject, as well as the role of self-portraiture for Cézanne. They investigate the chronological evolution of his portrait work, with an examination of the changes that occurred within his artistic style and method, and in his understanding of resemblance and identity. They also consider the extent to which particular sitters influenced the characteristics and development of Cézanne’s practice. Beautifully illustrated with works of art drawn from public and private collections around the world, Cézanne Portraits presents an astonishingly broad range of images that reveal the most personal and human qualities of this remarkable artist. Exhibition Schedule: Musée d’Orsay, Paris (June 13 to September 24, 2017) National Portrait Gallery, London (October 26, 2017 to February 11, 2018) National Gallery of Art, Washington (March 25 to July 1, 2018)

C alifornia is a land of contradictions. Nothing could be more different than the wet foggy forests of northern Califor- nia, the alpine summits of the High Sierra with its crystalline air and achingly blue skies or the intense dry heat of Death Valley. Compare these places with the never-ending boulevards of Los Angeles and San Francisco's Castro Street. Who but a pair of artist-hippies would have the adaptability to grok it all? The sum of the geography and people gives an understanding of the whole state of nature and culture that is California. California Trip shows the history of peace and love, the tradition of protest, the freedom of the open road and the highs of California's wilderness – all that is far from shopping malls and corporate cubicles. This an uncensored look at real California, not a tourist whitewash. It is a social critique yet also captures the freewheeling spirit and beauty of California. A thinking person's guide to California, outrageous and insightful, this book feels the pulse of the state. For visitors, it's a trip they want to take; for residents it describes the art of living in their state, finding both thrills and spiritual meaning in its wilderness and people. Take the California Trip–but watch out if you go to some of the stranger destinations in the book–the hippie pot farms or San Quentin's prison yard! By vicariously experiencing California through these stories and pictures, readers will be inspired to experience the incredible highs of California themselves, not in posh hotels but in a car and sleeping bag, hiking and medi- tating in the alpine peaks or shimmering deserts. Color & Light Editions is proud to publish this groundbreaking book by Richard Blair and Kathleen Goodwin. It is a book that will expand the art of the photographic essay.

It has been said of Michael Zagaris' photographic oeuvre that it is the "last untouched rock archive." Zagaris was responsible for shooting everyone in the rock music scene in San Francisco in the 1970s and '80s, including The Clash, Grateful Dead, Blondie, Sex Pistols, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground, Patti Smith, Led Zeppelin, and many more. Zagaris' photographs are some of the best portraits of their kind. Because a lot of his work was taken for pleasure rather than pay, the vast majority of his archive has remained unseen until now. Total Excess is the complete anthology of his incredible rock photography. This is the first book in a series of collaborations between Reel Art Press and Zagaris. Michael Zagaris (born 1945) grew up in the Central Valley of California. In 1967 he entered law school and also started working for Robert Kennedy as a speechwriter. The trauma of witnessing Kennedy's assassination at close quarters propelled Zagaris away from politics and law and into photography, and he began covering rock music in San Francisco. He also captured some of the most vital counterculture figures of that period, including Billy Bowers, Divine, Peter Berlin, The Cockettes and Jim Carroll, who used one of Zagaris' portraits for the cover of his book Basketball Diaries. In 1973 he began as a team photographer for the San Francisco 49ers, and the Oakland As in 1981, both of which he continues to shoot to this day. Zagaris lives in San Francisco.

Ambitious and groundbreaking, Electric Shock tells the story of popular music, from the birth of recording in the 1890s to the digital age, from the first pop superstars of the twentieth century to the omnipresence of music in our lives, in hit singles, ringtones and on Spotify. Over that time, popular music has transformed the world in which we live. Its rhythms have influenced how we walk down the street, how we face ourselves in the mirror, and how we handle the outside world in our daily conversations and encounters. It has influenced our morals and social mores; it has transformed our attitudes towards race and gender, religion and politics. From the beginning of recording, when a musical performance could be preserved for the first time, to the digital age, when all of recorded music is only a mouse-click away; from the straitlaced ballads of the Victorian era and the ‘coon songs’ that shocked America in the early twentieth century to gangsta rap, death metal and the multiple strands of modern dance music: Peter Doggett takes us on a rollercoaster ride through the history of music. Within a narrative full of anecdotes and characters, Electric Shock mixes musical critique with wider social and cultural history and shows how revolutionary changes in technology have turned popular music into the lifeblood of the modern world.

Chilean photographer Sergio Larrain (1931-2012) published very few books during his lifetime, but perhaps the most f�ted among them was Valpara�so. He photographed this Chilean seaport throughout his career, but it was in the early 1960s, when he returned to his homeland after travelling the world for many years as a Magnum photographer, that it became a focus for his attention. He saw it as 'a rather sordid yet romantic city', standing between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, falling into a slow decline as its trading importance faded away, yet still retaining hints of beauty and magic. Now published in English for the first time with an introduction by Agn�s Sire as well as a specially written text by Nobel laureate Pablo Neruda, this new edition of Valpara�so is based on a layout that Larrain designed in 1993, in response to the original French edition of 1991. It also includes a selection of previously unpublished photographs taken between 1952 and 1992, expanding the original 36 images to a total of 120. This intimate book features handwritten notes and texts by the artist himself, allowing us to share his singular vision of the world and its moments of grace.
